Lyme disease is the result of infection with the spirochete Borrelia Burgdorferi. It is generally thought that the infection is the result of a tick bite, which about 50% of the time results in a rash, often described as a ‘bulls eye’ rash, but which can vary in appearance.
Symptoms of untreated Lyme disease typically include joint aches which seem to migrate from one joint to another over days, inflammation, flu-like symptoms (fever, chills, body aches, headache), neuro-psychiatric problems (e.g., Bell’s palsy-paralysis of one side of the face; numbness, weakness, mood disorders, psychosis, cognitive impairment, even seizures). Some people report abnormal heartbeats or gastrointestinal problems.
Inflammation is a factor in numerous mental health disorders. An anti-inflammatory diet is an excellent non-medicinal way of reducing inflammation and the health problems it contributes to. Join Dr. Hedaya as he interviews the authors of the Recipe for Repair Cookbook, and ask your questions about Lyme, inflammation, and diet. Author Gail Piazza is a home economics consultant with a Master’s degree in Food and Nutrition. She developed the recipes based on Dr. Singleton’s anti-inflammation diet for her daughter Laura, who’d been diagnosed with Lyme. Both will join us and provide answers to the following questions:
- What is Lyme disease?
- What is inflammation?
- How does food affect inflammation?
- How does the anti-inflammatory diet work?
- Has it been tested?
- Is this diet only for Lyme?
- Are there tricks to reduce prep time?
- Are there some recipes that are more important than others
- Are their individual differences in what components of the diet work on?
